Creative Writing for Trauma Recovery
Thursday, October 17, 2019 | 1 pm - 4:00 pm
Want to join us for a creative writing workshop?
Writing is so freeing when we can silence that inner critic or have a safe, supportive group who will listen to our words with compassion and without judgment.
Echo invites you to join just such a group for a half-day workshop where we will provide writing prompts and the opportunity (entirely optional) to speak our truth aloud.
Sometimes journaling is the only way of creating order from the inner chaos. Sometimes poetry can provide symbol and metaphor when the survival brain does not have coherent words. And sometimes writing can help us form our ‘coherent narrative’ to help us make sense and create meaning from our experiences.
Let’s write for liberation. Let’s write for recovery. Let’s celebrate our resilience in words whether they come in gusts and squalls or drip slowly like lifeblood to the page. (See, we started already!)
